Natalya was my violin teacher from 2005-2007 during my junior and senior year of high school. She was the one who prepared me for college auditions when I walked in one day and told her I decided I wanted to major in Music after being with her for less than a year. She was so proud of me when I was accepted and I know she would be proud to know I am now a music teacher and still play my violin when I can. Out of all the violin teachers I had after her, she is still my favorite. My favorite memories with her are playing in the Danbury Symphony together, her offering me her slippers in the winter time, and the lesson where she said she would be right back and came back with an apple which she cut up to show me how note values worked. Then gave me the sliced apple to take home as a snack lol. She will forever be with me. RIP Natalya <3

I was with my daughters (Sarah and Christie) at Natalya and Zakhary's house for a summer violin lesson. It was a dreary rainy day. Ray was restless. He went over and stood by the back door and barked. Natalya said something to him in Russian. Sarah, who was maybe 7 years old at the time, exclaimed, "Ray speaks Russian?" We all had a great laugh over that one.

Then Natalya told us a story about when she had recently moved from Russian and was in the City. She and Ray were walking down the street and all of a sudden, Ray froze in his tracks. Natalya didn't know why. She listened for a minute and realized that Ray had heard someone speaking Russian, something he hadn't heard except at home since Zakhary and she had moved from Russia.

She told us many stories over the years we knew her, about her childhood growing up in Russia and about her life here in the United States. We loved hearing her stories. We will always cherish them.

I played in the Danbury Symphony with Natalya, and she always had a smile and a kind word for me. She was always willing to answer my questions and helped me wherever she could. She was a wonderful woman, and I will miss her.
